Don't you hate it when you go to buy a manga and they skip the volume you need? I was at the bookstore trying to get the Wallflower/Yamato Nadeshiko Shichi Henge (I think that's how you spell it...) and I needed the 6th book and it went 1...2...3...4...5...7...8 and so on! Agh! It's so aggravating!

I don't buy manga anymore, so it doesn't happen a lot to me :/ But when I do happen to be there and I want to pick a memorable volume to buy, it had better be there >:(

Don't you hate it when those summaries on the backs of those volumes have the suckiest wording you have ever seen? They make Furuba look like some valley-girl cheesy romance; I get put off just reading them.

I hate it when some good really REALLY good series gets licensed, and the scanlators are goody two shoes who stop scanlating something when it gets licensed....or how even though the licensed chapters are up, no one's scanning them and putting them on evil empire or anywhere else.

From the library, yes. The bookstore where I go buy manga/manhwa have a large section for it, (it's an asian bookstores yes), and they take of that section. So there's no missing volumes and there's a huge quantity lined up neatly, kind of like the bookstores you see in manga.

I don't like it, but who are we to complain? We are getting to read it for free. Then again, I don't like waiting for scanlations that are unknown and are only available through japanese raws. =(

Some mangaka's are living on a diet of instant ramen, imagine what they're going to be eating if you start reading all their works for free

I don't read all their works for free, I have a bookshelf filled with a lot of series. It's just that licensors are typically slower and I suck at reading for Chinese and my Japanese is still in learning status (though I'm quite good at it in class) and it's hard to find some in my Chinese bookstores and Kinokuniya. ...like for Silver Diamond, I was on vol 8 when it was licensed, and now I have to start all over again from vol 1. ...But I bought that volume. ^^

ABOUT MANGA

I hate it when...

1) ... I look through the volumes I need in the shelves and it's not available [ or is skipped ]
2) ... the volume I need is available but the only copy is folded, dirty, etc.
3) ... the manga I'm searching for is not on its respective shelf [ it flies to the reference area?! ]
4) ... people are reading the volume I need [ then it ends up being folded, dirty, etc.]
5) ... people are sitting in front of the shelf as if it's their territory
*yes, that is annoying at times when the aisles are small
